Foods You think are Healthy but They Aren't


I'm sure we've all chowed down on food that we swore was healthy only to find out later that it was anything but. Well, AOL compiled a list of 12 popular "healthy" foods that are probably adding more calories to your diet than you realize:

1. Pasta Salad

2. Pretzels

3. Baked Beans

4. California Rolls

5. Low-Fat Salad Dressing

6. Yogurt with Fruit on the Bottom

7. Corn Oil

8. Granola Bars

9. Croutons

10. Fruit Cocktail in a Can

11. English Muffins

12. Low-Fat Peanut Butter


So which one of these are you guilty of? For me it was the yogurt with the fruit on the bottom. Yogurt was a little meal in a cup or a quick an easy snack after running. I would eat 2 or 3 a day. The calorie count was 120 so I was thinking, "Eh, not bad." But then one day I said let me look at the sugar count. There were like 25 grams of sugar (coulda been thirty), I said...Damn. Maybe I need to put that down.

Granola bars for me. I love those things. I just recently started making sure I get the 90 calorie ones.
